Real estate developer Jim Abdo has left his mark on many neighborhoods in the District, helping shift some areas from distressed and dangerous to hip and healthy while adding to the revitalization already under way in others. One of his recent projects, Landmark Lofts in the H Street corridor, is almost sold out, with just a few of the 44 lofts still available.

Located within walking distance of the Union Station and New York Avenue Metro stations, Landmark Lofts is at the beginning of the H Street corridor, a community in Northeast Washington undergoing revitalization.

The corridor has become a mecca for urban nightlife, with theaters, restaurants and an eclectic mix of music venues, including the Rock and Roll Hotel, Pap and Petey’s for jazz, and the Palace of Wonders, which has a vaudeville stage. The H Street Country Club has the city’s only indoor miniature golf course, complete with local landmarks at each hole. The Atlas Performing Arts Center brings live theater to the neighborhood.

Landmark Lofts is part of the Senate Square condominium complex, a 2.2-acre site between Second and Third and H and I streets Northeast. Residents of Landmark Lofts have access to all the community amenities within Senate Square, including a landscaped courtyard with fountains and trees, a private fitness center, a clubroom, a private screening room and a rooftop swimming pool. Landmark Lofts has 24-hour concierge service, private underground parking and bike storage, and controlled access.

Each Landmark Lofts residence is unique, with varied floor plans ranging from 800 to 2,500 square feet; a private yard, a terrace or roof deck; and distinctive features that echo the building’s past. The building functioned as a convent in the 1870s, was run as a nursing home by the Little Sisters of the Poor and then, in the 1980s, became the Capital Children’s Museum.

The homes have vaulted ceilings, oversized windows and open floor plans designed for easy entertaining. Interior features include hardwood flooring, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, Italian granite counters, designer lighting and custom-designed baths.

Unit 1A, which has 1,618 finished square feet, with two bedrooms and two baths, is priced at $749,900, with a monthly condominium fee of $419.

Dramatic double doors open into the foyer of this home, leading into an open dining area and kitchen with a breakfast bar. Adjacent to the dining area is a spacious living room with windows on two sides and a door to an expansive private terrace. Off the living room is the first of two bedrooms, this one with a walk-in closet and a private full bath with a double-sink vanity and an oversized shower. On the opposite side of the home are a second bedroom and a second full bath.
